Kenwood kdc-w3041 protect mode


Hello ia737,

The "protect" display is probably being caused by a shorted or grounded (touching vehicle chassis or other ground) speaker wire. Check the speaker wires for bare spots, etc and insulate or replace as necessary.

You do not need to remove the fuses to force a "cold reset" of the W-3041. You can simply press the "reset" button on the front of the unit. It's the little recessed button at the lower left of the volume control. Use the straightened end of a paper clip or ballpoint pen to momentarily hold the button in.

Hope this helps.

I need a wiring harness for my kenwood kdc-mp485. i am not sure that that is the exact model but its close. Where can i get 1?


Hello cullenmyoung,

Here's the link to Kenwood parts. When I do a model search on "kdc-mp485" it brings up 8,314 results. When I do a description search for "wiring harness", there are 250 results. My recommendation is to call their toll-free number, (800) 645-3516, and make sure of the exact wiring harness that you need.

Hope this helps.

I am replacing the radio in a 2000 Malibu, and none of the wires for the harness are labeled. We just bought the car used and the plug has been removed. I am trying to find a diagram of the wiring for the...


Your probaly better of find the wires yourself its pretty simple.

First off you need to find the earth wire, its the wire with continuity to ground. Next you need to the wire that has power when the ignition is off, this is you constant/memory wire. Then find the wire that has power only when the ignition is on, this is acc. power wire.

Now to find which speaker wires go to which speaker. depending on how many speakers the car has there should be at least 4-8 wires for the speakers, two for each speaker.

all you have to do is get a nine volt battery an put power to the speaker wires and you should hear the speaker crackle, it wont hurt the speaker at all, if you cant get this to work just look at the wires on the speaker and match them to the ones in the dash.

hope this helps you out

hi there
if you matched all the wires from the harness to the kenwood deck and its not working don't worry you just missed the last step........(all wires attached that a colour coded connected)
simply turn your car on.........now on the front of the kenwood deck there is a SOURCE button with all units it could be a (S, SRC, Power) hold the source button down till your kenwood unit powers up ..........if your unit still doesn't work check the fuse on back of kenwood unit should be a 10a fuse (blue) if the fuse is fine put the unit back in dash..........now check the fuse panel on driver side dash with the door open you will see this panel pull it off (some describe the fuse panel as looking like an air vent but its not its a handle to open) now on the panel that you just pulled off there is a fuse diagram on the inside look at it find radio fuse it will be a (blue fuse) located in the top row of fuses check it if blown replace and unit should work.............if this doesn't solve the issue than its a (sneaky) fuse not to many people know about if you pop the hood of your car there is a black plastic panel located just below the battery pins and just above the driver head light (usually black box with yellow writing on it......in this there are mini fuses check all of them do not touch the black relays in there just the small tiny fuses the fuse you will look at should be yellow 20a (this fuse is closest to engine and comes after the abs relay if you look inside the lid you took off it will have fuse locations cant remember which one it is for sure but check them..........now see if your kenwood unit powers up if not the last option is to ground to the black wire from back of kenwood unit to metal frame.............this last part is also done if your unit does power on but your car lights don't work if this happens ground the kenwood unit to the frame of car and open up fuse panel on driver side dash replace the blown fuse for lights or radio (make sure the kenwood unit is grounded to the frame before replacing the fuse in dash panel............if this doesnt help you than i would assume the kenwood deck needs to be repaired by kenwood.......
good luck
hope i was able to help and sorry this list is so long
